Looking to purchase a Cal 33 - questions

I am new to this site. Have owned a few sailboats over the years. Been without boat since 2006 and now the bug bit again.

Narrowed our search down to a Cal-33. She looks in extremely good condition, but the purchase process is just beginning and I am getting my first full day on her to really look her over. No sea trial, just going over the boat and am thinking that next would be a survey by a competent boat surveyor.

Question, I see mention of Cal 33 and Cal 33-2. What is the difference in the two (if any). Year built or location built? Something like that?

Any pointers during this purchase process is appreciated.

I was looking at a Cal 30, and the 30-2 was the later, 2nd version of the original 30. Like a mark II.

Good luck!

1975 Irwin 28 - hasn't earned a new name yet, but at this point it might not be flattering.

Re: Looking to purchase a Cal 33 - questions

The 33 and 33-2 are two completely different boats. I own a 1985 33-2, the first year they were available. Its a Ray Hunt design while the 33 was a Lapworth design. If the boat you are looking at was built in the 1980s, its a 33-2. If in the 1970s its the older 33. Once you look at the boat, feel free to ask questions.
